App Icon Badge Notification Frustration

Hi,

I recently upgraded from the Galaxy s6 to the Note 10+. I've noticed when I swipe away the notifications in my notification center, the badge Icon disappears. I am extremely frustrated with this feature. 

With my s6 the badge would persist until I opened the app and looked at what it was notifying me about. For example, if I had six unread text messages, I'd have a persistent bage notification until I opened all the text messages. I loved this feature because it prevented me from missing or forgetting about any texts. 

Currently I swipe notifications away when I'm busy or its not a priority item so my notification center isn't crowded. Problem is, later I forget about the notification and since the badges clear with the notification, I lose track of my unread messages or notifications from other apps.

Is there a way to change this? Does anybody else share the same struggle or have found a solution?

Is this feature the same on all current Android phones, just Samsung Phones, or only the note 10 series?

Thank you for the reply,

Hi I have the same problem.But  what happened to me was that i updated the software on my S7 to the latest Android 8 and after that i had the option to change that setting to clear badge numbers when notifications are cleared. Now i cant find where it was that i did that because i want to reverse it and have the badge numbers to remain after clearing the notifications.

Someone might know how this is done.Thanks for any help

What would it take to have this changed back? This is a real problem!

I'm surprised a lot more people aren't complaining about this. I constantly forget about my unattended notifications now. I don't like to leave my notification center cluttered all day until I get around to checking everything.

Unfortunately this is a "feature" on all Android phones now. I've had this "feature" for almost a year now and I've missed SEVERAL important calls/emails because of this. The only option they give is to download a 3rd party app to get the notifications - which is ridiculous. I'm hoping they'll get rid of this "feature" in the future, but I highly doubt that'll happen.
